sort of led us to this debt problem, led us to this deficit problem. they want homeownership for everybody. we want tax cuts. we want medicare part "d." we want an expansion of safety net programs and then this is what happens. there's no one in the middle to figure out how to pay for all this stuff the middle has been getting. >> and that's really honestly what this election is about. i think one of the things that i found fascinating, although i didn't think they quite got there, is when the two candidates were asked about the role of government, because that's what elections are always about, it seems to me. i mean, yes, you know, it's about turning out your base and about this or that, but it is mostly about what do you think the role of government is? should the government, for instance, be helping people buy homes through the deduction that we can take on interest rates on the home loan? that's a legitimate argument. is that really the role of government? and if so, somebody has to pay for it, but i don't think we have yet gotten down to the basics of that. what do you want

, let's look at the deficit. romney is planning to cut more funding than big bird and pbs. his plan is to reduce foreign aid, and one of the biggest cuts, prioritizing amtrak. you may not think that's a big deal, i use amtrak all the time. romney says privatizing it will save $1.2 billion. however he does it, his goal is to reduce government spending to 20% of gdp. gdp is the biggest measure of everything we produce in society, and he wants to that by the end of his first term. right now government spending is at 25% of gdp. let's shed more light on what romney's america would look like. kevin hassick is an economic adviser of mitt romney. he's also the study at american enterprises institute. my good friend christine romans is the host of "your bottom line" right here on cnn. no idealogical spin today, no using the word obama or the term democrat. just paint me a picture of what it is world looks like under romney four years from now using specifics. you can't say we'll be better, everyone will be richer. tell me everything that happens rphappens, the good and the bad, kevin, you g

year, we would still have a $300 billion deficit. you see, there aren't enough rich people and small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. and so the next time you hear them say, don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch out, middle class, the tax bill is coming to you. that's why we're saying we need tax reform. let's look at it this way. 8 out of 10 businesses, they file their taxes as individuals, not corporations. where i come from overseas, which is lake superior, the canadians, they drop their tax rates to 15%. the average tax rate on businesses in the industrialized world is 25% and the president wants the effective top tax rate to go above 40%. 2/3 of our jobs come from small businesses. this one tax would actually fax about 53% of small business income. it's expected to cost us 710,000 jobs. and it doesn't even pay for 10% of the proposed deficit spending increases. we're saying close loopholes primarily to the higher income people. we have three bottom lines. don't raise the deficit. don't raise taxes on the middle class.

going to be a gap there. how do you pay for that gap? you can either just add it to the deficit or you can close deductions and loopholes for middle class families. that's the mortgage deduction, the child deduction, charitable deduction, and that's been estimated to be about $2,000 for middle class families. that's the math. so he's taking my words out of context. it is a $5 trillion tax cut that he cannot pay for. >> let's just clarify two things there. one is did you say that it was wrong. is he right when he says that? >> no. what i said, piers, was the total of his tax cuts cost $5 trillion. now, if he's going to close loopholes and deductions, you know, that cost will be lowered. but it's not going to be lowered enough for this thing to be totally paid for. the only way to do that -- >> i understand that. >> -- is to close deductions for middle class families. >> this is quite important. it's quite important because -- >> he's wrong. >> okay. let's discuss how he's wrong. because what he says is when the president keeps saying as he did in that debate it's a $5 trillion tax c

to the deficit with this tax plan. >> what we're saying is lower tax rates 20%. start with the wealthy, work with congress to do it. >> you guarantee this math? >> let's talk about the pressure that's on romney to try to give more specifics about how do you do that? what about that math? >> well, you know, there are a lot of numbers flying around, but the question really is very specific and easy to grasp. sit mathematically possible to do the three things that romney says he's going do on his tax plan? not raise the deficit and not reduce the share of taxes paid by the wealthy. the tax policy center which is an independent nonpartisan group has looked at the number and said those three things cannot be done at the same time, because if you cut taxes by 2 , 20%--so romney still has to explain how all of this would all add up without assuming an elevated level of economic growth which the congressional budget office does not do when they calculate a tax plan. so there's still that question on him and he has not fully answered it. and again, if the math is wrong, i think you need

unequivocally that he would not cut taxes at all if they added to the deficit at all. now, as "the washington post" reporter checks out, for two years rom hi has been campaigning on a tax cut that would cost around $5 trillion over ten years. he said he would eliminate deductions and spending to pay for it. he never offers details. he did say he would cut funding for public broadcasting which was 0.01% in 2012. medicaid was 0.13%. romney also spoke in favor of regulations including much of the dodd/frank bill and he repeatedly held up as a model his health care plan in massachusetts which has added center the individual mandate and on which obama care is based. romney's transformation did not happen overnight. the candidate has been reworking his stuck stuck speech. he has a five-point stump speech. the first four points are absolutely identical to obama's stump speech. 2, dough mess tech energy, 3, retraining programs, four, domestic. on five they differ. i've long argued that romney is an intelligent man trapped in a party that has forced him to embrace extreme and impossible positions. one

speak. you write today in the "washington post" that president obama may be the deficit for him was he's out of practice. what do you mean? >> well, look, people have come up with all kinds of explanations, and i particularly like al gore's notion that the altitude was too high for the president. in this case you see almost all incumbent presidents have a difficult time. they spent four years in the white house being cloistered around not challenged bir their aides, by lawmakers or anybody else or the press trying to ask questions. in obama's case that's been difficult because he set all kinds of modern records for avoiding the press, avoiding news conferences and chances to mix it up with the press. when you're not being kept on your toes, getting skeptical, even hostile questions regularly, you get out of practice and those muscles aatrophy. that may have contributed to what he was so flat and sweel see if he can get back into the game of being challenged. >> the flipside to that, romney seizes what he thinks is a great opportunity, the economy. it was like he was in the boardroom
